some kind of snow mobile thingie!
From yahoo news..
"A father of five, he's also a four-time winner of the world's longest snowmobile race, billed as the most grueling. It's a sport the 43-year-old lifelong Alaskan is so passionate about that he's continued to compete even after his wife took office in December 2006.
In this year's 2,000-mile Tesoro Iron Dog contest, Palin and racing partner Scott Davis were trying to defend their 2007 championship when Palin broke his arm in a crash. It was 400 miles from the finish line, but he refused to quit, coming in fourth, cheered on by the parka-clad governor waving a checkered flag.
"There are racers who throw in the towel pretty quick, without broken arms, with just a head cold," executive race director Laura Bedard said Friday. "This speaks highly of his character."

Can we say trophy husband.... 4th place is still placement...
Rah rah rah for the under dog...
Anyone see the episode of south park where they elect the school mascott? It's a choice between a turd sandwich and a douchbag....
I think that says it all...
We don't have anyone that will fix the mess we are in...

I lived in Fairbanks for two years and I can tell you snow machines rock. Back then the hot ticket was the Kawi 440 water cooled motors, things have come a long way since the late 70's. I owned an artic cat with a kawi twin 250 in it. Polaris has been a huge player in this arena forever.
